Track Name: Mother Love
I can’t turn away, I can’t blind my eyes
She can’t do a thing right; she won’t get no love tonight
Sentenced to a room, a mattress for a bed
Writing down the ‘grown up’ words, swirling around her head

Laid up against your skin and felt nothing, no mothering
No arms around the life you gave
Not fit to be that name, mother, other
No arms around the life you gave

You know you should care, mammies eyes and daddies hair
But that’s not how it’s working out, those photo frames are bare
A price to pay too much, ‘that girl’ is still a child
A dented soul, a broken heart and sadness in her eyes

Laid up against your skin and felt nothing, no mothering
No arms around the life you gave
Not fit to be that name, mother, other
No arms around the life you gave

No arms around

Laid up against your skin and felt nothing, no mothering
No arms around the life you gave
Not fit to be that name, mother, other
No arms around the life you gave.
Track Name: The Way it Was
Forgiveness is the word you crave and you won’t stop
Until you hear that everything is alright, everything is ok
And that’s the way it should be, but that don’t mean
It wipes the slate clean, that everything’s forgotten gone,
Things aren’t ok

Because anyway you say it, say it,
Anyway you paint it
You can’t change the way it was, the way it was

I’m not sure who it’s for, I’m not taking higher ground
But moving on is leaving someone else behind
“Practise what you preach” they say, and that’s been done
Ironic ways because those who are those who know,
And they don’t need another excuse

Because anyway you say it, say it,
Anyway you paint it
You can’t change the way it was, the way it was

You say and you pray with your higher ground
Doesn’t make who you are when you’re looking down
The way it was, is the way it is,
We are, we love, we live

Because anyway you say it, say it,
Anyway you paint it
You can’t change the way it was, the way it was
Track Name: Pictures of Losing Sleep
I won’t fall apart, the good and bad
Won’t let this turn to rust
And you, don’t write yourself off and turn to bones
Your more than ashes fallen
And these years spent wishing on another place
Don’t close your eyes, you’ll miss it

I am turning tide, I am broken heart
Moving side by side, torn and tired, but standing by your side

I am where I am, I’m all I can be now this time is mine, not being denied, won’t be denied

I was saving love, but you can’t do that
Must give it out to get some
And you, don’t move so fast, don’t run away
Your soul’s too big to carry

I am turning tide, I am broken heart
Blown away by this, not disgraced by this
Holding on to it

I am where I am, I’m all I can be now this time is mine, not being denied, won’t be denied
Track Name: Big Wait
I know I’ll be waiting for the day when this, All comes crashing down
And heated words will spill themselves out, out and all around
But you won’t see that you should shoulder blame, in these years from now
But I know I’ll keep it to myself because you’re not wrong, wrong!

I got a big wait, for you won’t say, I got a big wait

I’ll bite my lip and hold my breath because, you’re gonna come around
And when you do, I don’t know where I’ll be, or if I’ll hear you out
But I know I’m ok, alright, I am sure, although it won’t be long
But I know I’ll keep it to myself because you’re not wrong, wrong!

I got a big wait, for what you won’t say, I got a big wait

And I am holding out for that day, you apologise,
Not losing sleep not hanging on, not
Waiting for that time

I got a big wait, for what you won’t say, I got a big wait
